The demo started today.

More decent, pleasantly scaled buildings lost. The ugly parking garages and one story Walgreens in the immediate area remain standing.

^ My friend works for the developer. They were suppose to take down that Walgreens and put up a big tower on that parking lot/walgreens, but of course that's been put on hold. It was suppose to be a development with 151, the new building, and then the pocket park and for course Franklin in the middle.

I've been watching them take down that building on the corner the past few days, since I work directly next to 155 N. Wacker.

I do like the lobby a lot though, I've walked through a few times checking it out, and I saw today there were a lot of people in the building going up/down. I'm assuming someone has moved in and it's open for business.

They really got that lobby and outside walkway finished up QUICK.

Walking along Wacker, I notice that 155 and my building, 191, really accent each other nicely. The lobbys are similar, it's attractive from Wacker and the sidewalks are quite wide. Pull in 333 W. Wacker and it's 3 buildings in a row with the tinted glass and silver linings between floors.

The lobby and courtyard are really nice at night. I think the geometric ceiling treatment is a bit busy during the day, but turn the backlighting on and it suddenly all works.

Amazing picture! The facades look like they're made of water.

I work in the middle building with a view looking out towards the northwest. I'm lucky to be just west of where 333 Wacker would block the view. I just sit here all day drooling out at the views.

Our lunchroom has a wall of windows on the south side that looked out on this construction from halfway up. It was a very awesome vantage to see how these get built looking from the top down. It's still quite empty.
